How we are funded

The ME|FM Society of BC finances its activities through membership fees, tax deductible donations, grants, fundraising events and bequests.  While the majority of the activities of the Society are undertaken by a small, dedicated group of volunteers, we rely on all our funding sources to increase our support programs, hire consultants and meet administrative expenses.

We are profoundly grateful to the Ko family and Opera Mariposa for gifting us the proceeds of annual fundraising events, and to The Wickerson Foundation for their ongoing support of our work.  

We also acknowledge the generous partnership between RBC and the Prince George Hospice Palliative Care Society.


With this support, the ME|FM Society of BC is piloting a series of social support groups including individuals impacted by what is commonly known as Long-COVID, and meeting the diagnostic criteria for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME).
